Theory and applications of the shift-invariant, time-varying and undecimated wavelet transforms
Burrus, C. Sidney
Master of Science
In this thesis, we generalize the classical discrete wavelet transform, and construct wavelet transforms that are shift-invariant, time-varying, undecimated, and signal dependent. The result is a set of powerful and efficient algorithms suitable for a wide variety of signal processing tasks, e.g., data compression, signal analysis, noise reduction, statistical estimation, and detection. These algorithms are comparable and often superior to traditional methods. In this sense, we put wavelets in action.
